    I've seen a Danish Army Medical pack on a U.K army surplus website that looks just the job,I was trained as an engineer, and I love making things.

    I found an army surplus bag years ago for under $20. I love the frugal creative of APUGers. It's more creative to hack another use for camera bags than buy one. Besides expensive camera bags says "Please rob me"

    Great looking bag too - dare I say you could start a new business ;-) Or does that defeat the purpose?!

    I would fail trying to find a shitty bag of ANY kind for under $20aud to start with. The only place would be a garage sale...no store is this cheap.

    One thing that amuses me about the current crop of Urban Disguise and Lowe pro Classified type camera bags is that are made not to look like camera bags, they look like laptop bags and I would think it more likely that some crazed druggie would mug you for your laptop that would be much easier to sell for him than your camera.

    Benjiboy...I don't think the bag I made looks like a laptop bag at all. It's way too flimsy and bulks like I have a football in there, not long and flat. I think of the flat, stiff black bags when I think of a laptop bag. But if a crackhead tries to rob me I'll just scream that "IT'S A 1950s FILM CAMERA!!" or just pull out the little tank and camera whip his ass.

    Krzys...I got the bag at Value Village, a second hand clothing store in Canada. It's pretty much like a big garage sale, but more expensive. I'm sure you can find something similar in Australia. You can always get the bag on the other link posted above and get lining from ebay, quick and cheap build for under $50. But you might as well spend a little more and get a "professional bag" if that's the case.

    I wasn't suggesting your bag did look like a laptop bag I was speaking in general. I was once talking to my wife about buying an Think Tank Urban Disguise bag, http://www.tempecamera.biz/URBAN_DIS..._BAG_p/825.htm and it was she who pointed out how much it looked like a laptop bag, and I tend to agree.
